How To Apply

Could your organisation be bigger, better or more sustainable?

Applications will open on 1st November for charities and social enterprises based in London, the South East, the South West, and East Anglia to be considered for the Pilotlight Programme. Deadline for applications is 24th November 2017.

Pilotlight is an award-winning charity that connects the charity and business worlds to create positive social change. Through our Pilotlight Programme we coach and mentor charity leaders to develop the strategic business skills needed to help their organisation become more effective and sustainable.

We will be looking for ambitious organisations that tackle social disadvantage in the UK and are based in London, the South East, South West and East Anglia to participate in our Pilotlight Programme. The programme offers 10 – 12 months of facilitated coaching from four volunteer senior business mentors (we call them Pilotlighters), supported by a dedicated Pilotlight Project Manager and is free of charge. Teams meet monthly in our central London office and each project is bespoke to the strategic challenges each organisation is facing.
